Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever will feature a pet-store cat that is constantly overlooked and a 12-year-old girl who can communicate with Grumpy Cat. Casting for the voice of Grumpy Cat—whose real name is Tardar Sauce—is still underway. Look for cameos from other Internet memes.

Grumpy Cat shot to fame thanks to Reddit in 2012 after owner Tabatha Bundesen's brother posted a picture of the cat. The kitty has been the subject of a book and calendar and made numerous TV appearances, most recently on American Idol. Bundesen has said the cat's famous expression and petite size are likely because of feline dwarfism.

The official Grumpy Cat Facebook page has close to 6 million likes and shared the news of the Lifetime movie with this caption: This Christmas is going to be the #WorstChristmasEver.

No official premiere date has been set, but look for Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever during the 2014 holiday season on Lifetime.
